MANCHESTER, N.H. – Revere resident Gina Buccieri is among select students from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H., who have been inducted into the Epsilon Tau-at-Large Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society of Nursing. This fall Sigma Theta Tau inducted Buccieri among 30 students for the 2022-2023 academic year. Buccieri is expected to graduate in May 2023 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
To be considered for induction into Sigma Theta Tau, students must have completed at least half of the nursing curriculum in baccalaureate programs at accredited institutions of higher education, rank in the upper 35 percent of their graduating class and have a minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
In 1922 six nurses founded Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, today known as Sigma, at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, now home of the Indiana University School of Nursing. The society’s name derives from the Greek words for love, courage and honor. Currently, Sigma has more than 135,000 active members who live in more than 100 countries.
